The Polk County Sheriff’s Office recently discovered its fourth and fifth methamphet-

bottle were found approximately 20 to 30 feet from the Appaloosa Lane home, officers said. Officers said the residents of the home have recently moved out of the area, so the investigation continues. A sheriff’s investigator discovered the materials on the roadside Monday morning and then visited the Appaloosa Lane home to talk with the residents, who were not at home. While on the property, the investigator found the other materials in the yard along with other trash, which the suspects had attempted to burn, according to sheriff’s office reports. The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) assisted the sheriff’s office and cleaned up the materials.

This is the eighth meth lab discovered in Polk County since August 2011. The largest meth lab in Polk County’s history was discovered in August 2011 in Sunny View. Another meth lab was discovered in Green Creek in early November and the county’s third meth lab was discovered in Lynn later in November 2011. In January of this year, the sheriff ’s office discovered three meth labs in the woods in Mill Spring. Prior to the 2011 meth lab discoveries, no meth labs had been discovered in Polk County since 2007. The meth labs discovered in Hunting Country were considered small and medium sized, and sheriff’s office reports said they used the method referred to as “shake and bake” to create the meth.

Bronzing Powder with advanced pigment technology gives skin a naturallooking healthy glow in seconds.

Columbus Town Council commended its public works department during a meeting May 17 for finding and repairing an issue with fire hydrants at Morgan Chapel Village the town had been dealing with for years. Some hydrants, particularly along Mountain Laurel Drive, were bagged because they had non-existent or very low water pressure. Columbus Town Manager Jonathan Kanipe said town staff located a previously unknown valve that was closed halfway. The valve was completely buried and not listed on any water maps provided by the original developer or any of the town’s water maps. Kanipe said employees located the valve with a metal detector using the location where the pressure began to drop. Council members discussed how much the repair could have cost if the town had hired an outside engineer to find the problem. “Our public works staff did a tremendous job identifying this issue and determining the best way to approach a resolution,” Kanipe said. “Ricky McGuinn and James Smith were the staff assigned from the town and determined there must be a reason the pressure dropped so dramatically in such a short distance.”

determining the best way to approach a resolution. Ricky McGuinn and James Smith were the staff assigned from the town….”

-- Jonathan Kanipe

Kanipe said after not finding the valve on a map, the employees searched for a valve in the area where the pressure dropped and uncovered a valve covered by years of dirt, grass and tree roots. It was found to be open only halfway and once the valve was opened fully, the tests showed a significant increase in pressure. The fix resulted in five hydrants coming into service in the area. “Our public works staff is to be commended heartily for this good work,” Kanipe told town council. “The town had worked for some time to determine the cause of the reduced pressure in this area and spoken with engineers about the different remedies to fix this. Certainly it goes without question that finding this valve saved the town a substantial amount of money that would have otherwise been spent to improve the water pressure to Morgan Chapel Village.”

Ours Last weekend’s Spring Into Summer event further proved that if you want to make over your life in a healthy fashion, the foothills area of the Carolinas is the right place to be. Polk Fit, Fresh and Friendly hosted the event to promote ways in which our local residents can make healthier choices and thereby live healthier lives. The Polk County Farmers Market in Columbus featured a record 54 vendors selling herb plants, lettuces and zucchini to assist in the creation of a healthy dinner, plus sunflowers to brighten up your mood. Meanwhile, volunteers offered maps of all the area trails so locals could get outside and get moving. Vendors at the community health fair spent the afternoon teaching community members about proper dental care, giving advice related to caring for elderly loved ones and offering blood pressure checks. Finally, in the evening, the Polk County Recreation Department welcomed families to Gibson Pool to get reacquainted with the swimming pool and learn some safety tips for summer. The idea in mentioning this all again is to say that if you’ve ever felt like you didn’t know where to begin in your journey to getting healthier, just look around. We have a wealth of opportunities all around us - you only have to step outside your front door. — Editorial staff, Tryon Daily Bulletin

If you are worried about the speed that they travel then we would have to start worrying about people on mopeds because they don’t travel at high speeds either. Daylight hours only would make sense, but other then that and sticking to secondary roads I think that it would work fine and open up some alternative transportation.”

with them. We shared ideas, thoughts, and histories. We learned to respect each other and our differences. Our politicians used to sit down and discuss things, but they seem to have lost the ability/desire to see or accept any point of view other than their own. They seem to have forgotten that the people elected them to represent their needs and have become more beholden to big money interests. Many good projects are being voted down before any or very little discussion about how the best interests of all Americans can be served.. The Health Care Act is only one such item. Without even considering how to make it work better for all, some who are running for the highest office in the country, have said they will make its repeal a top priority. My great-granddaughter, Crystal Rose, is 5 years old and suffers from a rare form of Leukemia, with a blood type of AB-. She has a sister who is severely autistic. Because

of The Health Care Act, this family is able to get good care. Without it, how will they manage? How many other families are there like this? Will the local hospital ER take care of them? To have differences within a community is a good and normal thing. To talk about these differences without vilifying each other, but with a willingness to compromise, is what makes a community great. Why can’t our politicians put aside partisan politics, forget about making their main objective to get re-elected, sit down in community, and really try to find solutions to the country’s problems? What happened to the idea of friends calmly discussing their differences? What happened to common sense? America has been, and can be again, the greatest community in the world, if we will just come together and listen to each other in a climate of mutual respect and kindness, setting aside economic status, party politics, race and ethnicity. – Dolores Zeese, Columbus

it ever happened? And why are they so derisive of those who are concerned about mountain and ridgeline protection? We’ll be condemned to repeat that Chocolate Drop history, and tragedy, if we follow those peoples’ advice to forego mountain and ridgeline protection. Mr. Gibson seems to doubt that there has been property damage and loss of lives from landslides. Incumbent Saluda Mayor Fred Baisden suggested that reports of it were not true. But all either one needed to do was to Google “landslides in western nc” to see the destruction and, yes, death that occurs when mountain construction is improperly or unwittingly done. One article refers to “a torrent of mud rushing down from Fishhawk Mountain [washing] away 15 homes and [killing] five people in Peeks Creek.” “A 2009 investigation by the Citizen-Times found that 534 slides since 1990 have destroyed 40 homes and buildings.” A mudslide in Maggie Valley destroyed a home. And “a slow-moving landslide of about five acres” made living in Mike Boggan’s home in Franklin too dangerous. Mr. Boggan’s house was condemned, and he had to move in with friends. Homebuyers in Henderson County were also victimized by unscrupulous or unskilled builders who built on unstable slopes, causing the construction to settle and slide. Homeowners needed to build extensive retaining walls for tens of thousands of dollars to rescue



the construction, and even that may not have worked. Lawsuits were brought. At that time, Henderson County officials said they wished they’d had mountain and ridgeline protections in place so all of that could have been avoided. Polk County wisely adopted such ordinances three years ago. Even if the elevation threshold is removed from Polk County’s ordinance, which now seems likely, it is essential to retain the Best Management Practices building techniques in the Mountain and Ridgeline Protection Ordinances for both sloped areas and ridgelines. Those practices protect homeowners against unscrupulous or unknowing developers (which we have already experienced right here). That’s only sensible. Go to the website and you’ll learn that all of Western North Carolina has been designated a “High Risk Landslide Hazard Zone.” Using a link from the site (pretty far down), you can see graphic photographs of damage from landslides in Western North Carolina. The site will also tell you that there is no insurance to cover damage from landslides. The best insurance, the only insurance, is keeping in place the geologically and otherwise scientifically-based mountain and ridgeline protections that Polk County has previously adopted so that soil, surface water and other land conditions are investigated before building and so that building is done safely in the first place. – Renée McDermott, Polk County Board of Commissioners

Tryon Riding & Hunt Club scholarships Read the Bulletin

Tryon Riding & Hunt Club (TR&HC) has announced the winners of this year’s TRHC Educational Scholarships: • Skyler Warren, Polk County Early College graduate • Julie Mathis, senior at USC Upstate • Megan Betzel, a rising sophomore at Clemson University • Ashley Monk, a rising junior at Gardner Webb University The four students will each receive a portion of monies from the scholarship fund. TR&HC’s scholarship selection committee members said all four winners exemplify the spirit of the award by knowing that equestrian activities teach hard work, dedication, time management, responsibility and teamwork. The TR&HC scholarship selection committee consists of John Vining, Christina Feagan and Ryan Whitson. Seven years ago at the urging of TR&HC board member Nancy Z. Wilson, the TR&HC created a scholarship fund for equestrian-oriented graduating seniors and those attending institutions of higher education. All applicants must be involved in equine activities in the Polk County/Upstate region. This program is in addition to the TR&HC scholarship available through the Polk County

Up, up and away Seventh graders at Polk County Middle School recently learned about the science that explains why hot air balloons fly. Dr. Robert Pettis, seventh-grade science teacher, received two grants to fund this activity. A $750 grant from the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina and a $300 grant from the Polk County Community Foundation’s Middle School fund were used to purchase materials to build and launch paper hot air balloons. The final balloon launched was caught in an up-draft and ascended approximately 800 feet and was carried up and over Little White Oak Mountain. Dr. Pettis said he plans to make this an annual activity. Right: Mr. Claussen, Sheila Rodriguez, Litzy Sanchez-Roman and Erica Ramirez.

Polk extension service offers seafood cooking class June 14 Polk County Cooperative Extension Service will offer a “Seafood at Its Best Cooking Class” on June 14 at 2 p.m. at the extension office. The class will consist of four mini-sessions, which will include: 1. What is seafood and who supplies it to the United States? 2. Health benefits of enjoying seafood and new USDA

guidelines 3. Seafood risks 4. Healthy preparation techniques Seafood is consumed all over the world. It provides the world’s prime source of protein. More than one billion people rely on seafood as their primary source of animal protein. Iceland, Japan and Portugal are the greatest

consumers of seafood per capita in the world. According to class organizers, research over the past few decades has shown that the nutrients and minerals in seafood can make improvements in brain development and reproduction, and studies have shown strong links between fish and healthy hearts. Recent studies suggest that older

people who eat fish at least once a week could also have a lower chance of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. To learn more about the health benefits of seafood as well as how to cook seafood dishes, call the extension office at 828-894-8218 and reserve your space. - article submitted by Jimmi Buell

What do you do now, and why? Be very specific about your plan with justification for your approach. If you chose to play on Diamonds, you just got a bad score. If you played a Club, you may have a chance to get a top. The key point in this hand is that you have to get your winners before the opponents get theirs.

Did you take the time to notice that once the opponents get back in they will have 4 Hearts, 1 Club and 3 Spades and that would put you down 2?

If you try to set up your Diamonds and they don’t behave for you, you’ll be giving them another trick and be down 3 for -150. Even if you’re lucky enough to get 5 Diamond tricks, you’ll still be down 1. But more importantly, did you notice that the opponents can easily make at least 2 Hearts if they choose to compete? That would give them a +110. So if you just hold your losses to -100, you should get a great score. Therefore, if you immediately attack Clubs to set up 2 winners in that suit plus your other 3 sure winners, you would be down 2 for -100. The most the defense could get would be 4 Hearts, 3 Spades and 1 Club, which gives them +100. The moral to this hand is that sometimes you have to be a defensive declarer. That is, you must try to prevent the opponents from getting enough tricks that would give you a really bad score. This was not an easy hand. However, I want you to be aware that there is a lot more on being a declarer than trying to take as many tricks as possible. Sometimes you must just play for a chance to get the best possible result. Yes, you were lucky the opponents didn’t compete to 2 Hearts. But since they didn’t, you should take advantage of the situation and play for your best result.
